El-Zakzaky And Wife Set To Travel To India

Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), counsel to Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, has confirmed that the Shiite leader and his wife, Zeena, are due to travel out to India Monday evening.

He said, “El-Zakzaky is travelling out to India tonight with his wife as ordered by the Kaduna State High Court.”

Falana confirmed the planned trip during an interview with The PUNCH on Monday.

As earlier reported by Naija News, El-Zakzaky and his wife have already been moved to Abuja from Kaduna where they were previously held under custody.

When questioned about the effect of the additional conditions set by the Nasir el-Rufai-led Kaduna State Government on the planned trip, Falana retorted that the Department of State Services (DSS) had already indicated their resolve to comply with the court ruling.

He added that it was not his duty to comply with the extra-judicial order of the state government.

“The announcement of the DSS was that it would comply with the court order. My duty is to ensure that the DSS complies with the order of a competent court and not the extra-judicial and contemptuous directive of the Kaduna State Government,” he said.
